What Does a Waterfront Inspection Include?

When purchasing a home on the water, it’s important to be sure that the outdoor amenities are operational and safe. Magnolia will perform in-the-water inspections of bulkheads, docks, and piers. Most other inspection companies do only visual inspections.


Boat & Jet Ski Lifts
We’ll look for worn parts, frayed cables, loose bolts, and so on. We’ll check the condition of the electric motor, if applicable.


Repairs on docks can be expensive, so we’ll check for the following: seawall cap, bulk head, piles, panels, hardware, decking and framing structure, water/electric service, and drainage.


We’ll examine the structure of the pier and any mechanical equipment on it.


We’ll check for rot or erosion around the retaining wall.
